Overview

Come along with Artist and Storyteller Micah Pearson as he shares sights and visions from his and others' journeys of recovery. Sometimes haunting, other times beautiful, and frequently hilariously funny even when tragic—the art and stories shared will give you an insider perspective on living with mental illness like no other.



MICAH PEARSON is, like you, a lot of things. A writer whose work has been featured in USA Today and publications of the Washington Post. An artist and illustrator whose images have been displayed everywhere from coffee shops, art galleries, and board games, to the Smithsonian. A mental health advocate who has worked with all levels of government, from his local city council up to members of Congress. All to better the lives of persons living with mental health conditions and their families.


In another life, he was an Information Technology professional who worked for the Washington Post, the Congressional Research Service, National Institutes of Health, the American Chemical Society, and others. Micah has been, like you, a lot of different things before.


Micah has also dropped out of one of the finest art schools in the country, the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington DC. He's been the resident of multiple psychiatric institutions and detention facilities. The reasons for this? He's a person diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, with a pinch of Attention Deficit Disorder and recovering from alcoholism...for seasoning. He is, like you, flawed yet trying to be better and learn from his past.


Micah now lives in Southern New Mexico where he works as a Peer Support Specialist and serves on the national board of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. He also watches a lot of movies and plays lots of video and board games, but only mentions that because Micah, like you, tries to enjoy what little free time he has.
